This is as near as I got to the scarf colours, but it’s been great fun. I played with the Embellisher this morning and spent the afternoon watching the Monaco Grand Prix with one eye and stitching with the other.
This was also made today with some left over little bits I had and will eventually become a book cover. I’m afraid the lighter colour is nothing like the colour I used, the detail is a little better. The edges are stitched with some lovely thread I bought ages ago from Myfanwy, Sassa Lynne, which reminded me how much I used to love hand-stitching. I was a very traditional embroiderer at one time.
I was also reminded of a time when young I was not allowed to stitch or knit on a Sunday as it was considered a sin. A favourite pastime as a child was gathering firewood, but never on a Sunday!
